Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #795 – 9/16/2017: Arrica Rose and Adam Waltemire interviews!

Arrica Rose

Today’s Twirl Radio was a pretty big show: a doubleheader interview, and a not-quite-released track from the founder of Kansas!

We kicked things off with a return visit from California-based singer-songwriter Arrica Rose, whose great new album, “Low As The Moon”, just came out this month. The record truly showcases her vocals and rockin’, yet dreamlike songs. She and her band, “The …’s”, are going to be performing a couple of live shows in the next couple of weeks, one in L.A. and one in Oakland.

Adam Waltemire

Then we chatted with fellow DJ and radio brother Adam Waltemire. I’ve known Adam for the better part of a decade, and have admired his show, Pop Garden Radio, from near and afar. He’s a native of Florida, and he just made it through Hurricane Irma as it blazed through his home state. It knocked out a good part of WMEL, the station that airs Pop Garden Radio each week. Due to the situation, his show won’t be airing for a bit, so we checked in to find out what’s going on with him. As it turns out, Adam’s been working on putting together a compilation album that pays tribute to the music of Creedence Clearwater Revival. Several of today’s indie artists recorded some amazing covers of CCR songs, and Adam plays a few on today’s show!

Steve Walsh Black Butterfly album, releasing 11/10/2017.

And if that weren’t enough–we got to play a new track from Steve Walsh (founder of Kansas)! It’s a duet with Jerome Mazza of Pinnacle Point, and it has a really great, energetic sound. We were privileged enough to get ahold of this track nearly two months ahead of the release date of the forthcoming album Black Butterfly. It comes out worldwide on November 10th, and in Japan on November 21st, on Escape Music.

Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #794 – 9/9/2017: Karla Kane & Fun Of The Pier in-studio interviews!

Karla Kane

Today’s show featured two musical married couples–Karla Kane and Khoi Huynh of The Corner Laughers, and Helen and Mark Luker of Fun Of The Pier. Karla and Khoi are no strangers to Twirl Radio, but this time, we celebrated the release of Karla’s first solo album, “King’s Daughters Home For Incurables”. In the interview, we learned where the seemingly mysterious title comes from. While the sound of Karla’s solo songs may be a tad quieter and folkier than The Corner Laughers, there’s no mistaking who wrote the songs. Karla’s style is pretty unique among her peers–always intellectual and witty, and if a social statement needs to be made, it’s made in a gentle way that still manages to cut right to the point. A fine record indeed!

Fun Of The Pier

We were also treated to a visit with Helen and Mark, who are visiting us from Nottingham, UK! They’ve toured and played with The Corner Laughers in both the UK and US, and have just released their first full-length record, the delightful “14:42”. During the interview, we learned about the origins of the intriguing band name. Helen is the songwriter and singer/guitarist, Mark plays bass, and Richard Snow rounds out the trio with his signature guitar playing. The music is warm and sunny. Speaking as a Californian, it sounds very much at home here. Also a fine record!
